Description

eCryptfs 104 and earlier uses a default salt to encrypt the mount passphrase, which makes it easier for attackers to obtain user passwords via a brute force attack.

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
